The UK’s Pint of Science festival is going online for 2021 from 17th – 20th May, with scientists across the Quadram Institute and Norwich Research Park bringing their research to screens worldwide.
The Quadram Institute is involved in the free evening live show ‘Let’s Talk about Breast Health’, hosted on the final night of the festival, Thursday 20 May, from 7-8 pm. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in UK women. Research into this disease is ever ongoing as scientists and clinicians strive to improve patient outcomes. ‘Let’s Talk about Breast Health’ on Thursday 20 May from 7-8 pm will be hosted by Prof Anne-Marie Minihane and feature a panel of expert speakers: Honorary Senior Lecturer Dr Lisa Crossman, UKRI Future Leaders Fellow Dr Rianne Lord, and QI scientist Nancy Teng. The panel will explore the use of AI in mammograms, look into metal-based drugs as a new breast cancer therapy and see how the gut may influence breast health.
Tickets for ‘Let’s Talk about Breast Health’ and all Pint of Science Norwich events are free, and registration is available on the Pint of Science website. An interactive booklet is also available to help you navigate the complete programme.
Contributors from the Quadram Institute and across Norwich will also be sharing their research and science interests via Twitter and Instagram from Monday 17th – Thursday 20th May, so keep an eye out for the hashtag #Pint21Norwich to see all the amazing work going on around the city!
